Facelifts scheduled for popular pickups in H2

Competition in the local pickup truck market is expected to intensify as many major producers start introducing new models or updated versions of popular mainstays in the second half of this year.

Toyota Motor Thailand on July 13 will introduce updated versions of its Toyota Hilux Vigo pickup and pickup-based Fortuner sport utility vehicle (SUV), which have been brisk sellers the past seven years.

Rivals Isuzu, General Motors, Ford, Mazda and Nissan will follow suit.
